Hardin Memorial Health Foundation Board of Directors Chairman Joe Prather might have said it best about a recent donation to the new Cancer Resource Center at Hardin Memorial Health’s Cancer Care Center: “There is so much good we can do for HMH patients with everyone’s support.”
The HMH Foundation recently approved a $28,000 donation for the resource center on Robinbrooke Boulevard in Elizabethtown. The funding is to help construct, furnish and equip a place where cancer patients and their families can find information, support and resources that might be needed.
Supporters and former cancer patients have called the facility “a valuable and needed service.”
All services at the resource center will be available to patients and the public at no cost.
Prather said it was humbling for the board to help those battling cancer and their families.
There is never enough that can be done for those whose lives are impacted by this horrible disease. The HMH Foundation certainly has done its part and continues to do so.
Having a cancer center in Hardin County is invaluable. The same should be said for the HMH Foundation.
